I love to Bake! usually on Sunday afternoons when I am at home with my family after church. Working full time like a lot of you out there, that is my only time. I look forward to someday having plenty of time for my baking. I cruise the site on Saturdays looking for good baking recipes I might want to whip up. We have Raspberries,Rhubarb,Blueberries, and Marion berries out in our garden, so I have plenty of fruit to keep me busy in the spring and summer. I also enjoy making fresh jam for my family and being able to have it year round in the freezer. I live in the Pacific Northwest. I have lived here most of my life, I love it here, the climate is pretty mild. I have the mountains, the beach, and high desert all within two hour or three hours drive. But most of all, I enjoy the beach. Time taken for me at the Pacific Coastline revies me when I am worn out and stressed. What I enjoy to do for fun is being outdoors, riding our motorcylce, camping and crusing when we can. I love the wildlife, a short hike in the woods is wonderful. I love to do hand stitching. Especially, I love counted cross stitch. I am recently working on Angel Of Hope. It's that time of year and I have the garden in and am enjoying the out of doors. Lots ot tomatos, cukes, beans,zuchinni and pumpkin. I just picked the seasons first raspberries out of the garden,and made them into a wonderful batch of jam. Yum... we love both raspherry and strawberry jam. Hummm....Pet Peeve, oh I have one. I hate it when you forget to wipe your feet at the door coming into the house, and I am then left to sweep for floor up afterwards. It seems like such a simple task for someone to do before coming into the house.
